Does the ASME Code (Division 1 or 2) limit the amount of weld overlay that could be used on a component to increase the overall thickness to handle a higher pressure? Example, if I had a 12" Diameter Carbon steel shell that is 1" thick, is there a limit to how much weld overlay could be put on it for increasing the thickness? Not really a practical thing necessarily to do of course, but more of a general question of what the Code would allow.
